If the sadness of life makes you tired
And the failures of man make you sigh
You can look to the time soon arriving
When this noble experiment winds down and calls it a day

Time has come now to stop being human
Time to find a new creature to be
Be a fish or a weed or a sparrow
For the earth has grown tired and all of your time has expired

All the gardens are sprouting with flowers
All the treetops are bursting with birds
And the people all know that it's over
They lay down all their airs and they hang up their tiresome words

    General CommentI'm so surprised no one has commented on this. Something about this song, for me, is incredibly poignant. Pretty much the definition of 'bittersweet'. So, so good. I like TFUL282's typical stream-of-conscious, probably meaningless lyrics too, but this really does something to me. As far as the meaning, pretty obvious, really.

    General CommentThis song always reminds me of the Kurt Vonnegut book 'Galapagos'.
